Custodial history

Content of fonds was in the possession of Pauline Mary (Alward) Spatz, and kept in her home until transferred to the Tantramar Heritage Trust in 2006.

Scope and content

Fonds contains photographs and textual records pertaining to the descendants of Isaac Wry, which were handed down to and kept by his great granddaughter, Pauline Mary (Alward) Spatz. Most of the content refers to Pauline, her parents John Bunyan and Mabel Lena (Wry) Alward, and her grandparents John Willard and Jennie Grace (Snowdon) Wry, as well as other close relatives. The records listed here were part of a donation that also included a number artifacts.

Fonds is divided into four sousfonds which are further divided into relevant series. All content has been arranged chronologically.

Sub-fond 2: Mathilda Wry and Mary Elsie Wry
